• Remember last month when we said #1 was a great jumping-on point for new readers? Well, guess what? #2 is too! Start of a new story, baby!
• (It's ALSO a great "continuing-on" point for existing readers.)
• In this issue, Squirrel Girl gets sent BACK IN TIME and also ERASED FROM HISTORY. Only her friend Nancy even remembers she existed!
• So Nancy turns to the only hero she can contact (on social media) for help in rescuing her: IRON MAN.
• Also a surprise villain shows up, from the past! It could be LITERALLY ANY BAD GUY but it's a good one, I PROMISE.
• P.S.: it is not Galactus; we already di more

    here are some people who will say that The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is stupid. These people should be pelted with stale acorns. Well, perhaps that's a bit much. But there's a whole big Marvel Universe out there and there is room enough for books like The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl that poke fun at how gloriously silly superhero comics can be while telling a great story with fun artwork.

    The second installment in The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl's second volume is a delightful romp through the oft-overused trope of superhero time travel, and it still comes off as a fresh and engaging take on an old favorite plotline. The juxtaposition of Nancy in the present and Doreen in the past helps the story unfold naturally, without giving too much away at once. Doctor Doom's appearance at the close of the issuesuggests we're in for aDoreen vs. Doom face-off very soon " or even one with Nancy vs. Doom " which I absolutely can't wait to see. Read Full Review

    Time travel is a tricky threat. Being in the 60's isn't going to kill Dor. She could keep on living until she gets back to the present. When the problem is the way of the world, you have to fight the cause and not the effects. But what is the cause? Signs point to a villain sending her back in time, but Unbeatable Squirrel Girl keeps me expecting the unexpected. Trouble in the present or a need for heroes in the past; no matter where we find her, I am confident that Doreen Green will never give up. Read Full Review
